Go on a 12-week Ignatian retreat in your daily life. By registering, you will be guided through this experience by the retreat book and weekly reflections. For those that are going through this retreat individually, finding a spiritual director is recommended to accompany you through the journey. For suggestions on how to find a spiritual director in your area, see the retreat starter kit on the Program Details page.
Create a small group among your friends, family, or community and embark on a 12-week journey to find God in all things. We recommend meeting weekly or biweekly for faith sharing among the small group. See the retreat starter kit on the Program Details page for some small group suggestions.
Register to join an online small group with other retreatants and embark on a 12-week journey to find God in all things. These groups will be facilitated by a fellow retreatant, whose role will simply be to schedule the timing and platform of the online small group meetings, ensure that everything is set in place to hold meetings, and start the meetings on time. We recommend meeting weekly or biweekly for faith sharing among the small group. See the retreat starter kit on the Program Details page for some small group suggestions.
Many retreatants have implemented the Manresa retreat in their own parishes. Follow the guidelines or customize the retreat to the needs of your community. Previous parishes have found success in advertising the retreat in their parish bulletin and organizing in-person and/or online small group faith sharing. See the retreat starter kit on the Program Details page for guidance and structure of the retreat and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
“It's one of those things that we're all too busy to do something. But when it's the right thing and it's the right purpose, which is getting closer to God every single day...watch every video, read every page, participate in small group, and never miss. That's what the retreat did to my heart and soul and my faith.”
